HC Deb 26 March 1903 vol 120 c316

Can the right hon. Gentleman give us some rough idea what the business will be before Easter?


Army and Navy Votes will be put down for Monday, the Contracts and Victualling Votes for the afternoon sitting, and at the evening sitting I shall endeavour to make the Votes as uncontroversial as possible. On Tuesday the main business will be the Butter Bill, and the Army Annual Bill will be put down for that day. On Wednesday I propose to ask the House to get the Speaker out of the Chair to go into Committee on the Civil Service Estimates. The first Motion stands in the name of an hon. Member from Ireland, and he imagines the debate will occupy the afternoon. Going on with the Motion on Thursday, I hope to get the Speaker out of the Chair at the end of the evening sitting. I expect to take the Scotch Licensing Bill on Monday the 6th.
